Some British royalty visited the set of Star Wars: The Last Jedi for some secret cameos, but that didn't stop Mark Hamill from getting their opinion on a personal debate he wanted to settle for himself. During an appearance on The View, Hamill spoke about the day that Prince Harry and Prince William (major Star Wars fans) came to the set to shoot a scene that, unfortunately, did not make the final cut. As it turns out, their time spent on set wasn't a total loss. 

“We finally met the princes on set,” said Hamill, who recently received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. “You know William and Harry. You’re all lined up and you’re told how to address them formally, but when I got my chance to talk to them, I said ‘Your highness, I would like to make a case for myself. My father was Lord Vader, my mother was Queen Amidala, my sister was Princess Leia — doesn’t that make me royalty?”

The verdict ended in a split decision, revealed Hamill, with William saying, "Absolutely, I don’t say why not." Harry's exact words were not relayed to the audience, but it sounds like he was a naysayer. 

You might get to catch William and Harry's bit parts when The Last Jedi drops on Blu-Ray March 27.
